The security architecture working group (SAWG) is providing a platform for security architects in Melbourne to meet peers and exchange ideas to improve their security architecture delivery capabilities.

Meetings are organised by the ISACA Melbourne Chapter, the venue is sponsored by KPMG, and sessions are usually facilitated by Andreas Dannert, Research Director of the ISACA Melbourne Chapter and Enterprise Security Architect at nbn.

Attendees are encouraged to bring an open mind and willingness to share their experiences in order for everyone to get value out of these sessions.

Session Topic: Flow of deliverables for Enterprise Security Architecture

For our October session we will be taking a pragmatic look at delivering Enterprise Security Architecture at an organisation. In most large organisations one plan doesn’t do it  all. There are other documents in an organisation’s deliverable cycle that need to be developed and managed in order for an Enterprise Security Architecture (ESA) to be well documented. In this session we will look at the dependencies of an Enterprise Security Architecture to an Enterprise Architecture, a Business Architecture and other design documents. Understanding and managing the flow of these documents is critical for managing an organisation’s ESA, enabling an organisation to make decisive changes when required.

After a short introduction of this space we will be discussing how your organisation does it, what challenges you encounter and how to address them.
